Dyslipidemia's effect on diabetic neuropathy
from Lower Extremity Review
Diabetes is defined by the inability to regulate the levels of blood glucose and results from either a lack of insulin (type 1) or failure to respond to insulin (type 2). Over time, episodes of, or prolonged, hyperglycemia causes the severe complications of eye, kidney, cardiovascular disease and foot problems. Most foot problems are related to diabetic peripheral neuropathy and result from a loss of sensation and reduced blood flow. These factors lead to recurrent infections, ulcers and amputations, and Charcot neuroarthropathy.
